HENRY GOULBURN TO MESSRS. BLEASDALE, ALEXANDER & HOLMES, 2nd JUNE, 1815.
HUDSON BAY COMPANY'S RECORDS.
Downing Street, 2nd June 1815.
To Messrs. Bleasdale, Alexander & Holmes,
Solicitors to the Hudsons Bay Company.
I am directed by Earl Bathurst to acknowledge the receipt of the Memorial of the Hudsons Bay Corporation inclosing a Copy of the Resolution passed by them on the 19th May 1815 & requesting that they may be submitted to the Law Officers of the Crown on behalf of Government.
In reply I am directed to acquaint you that previous to taking any measures for approving or confirming the ordinances proposed to be made for the Government of His Majesty's Subjects in the neighbourhood of Hudsons Bay, Lord Bathurst feels it necessary to require from the Hudsons Bay Company a distinct specification of the limits of the Territory within which it is proposed that such ordinances should have effect and I am therefore to request that you would furnish his Lordship with this information.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your most obedt Servt,
(Signed) HENRY GOULBURN.
